An FCC filing hints that Apple could launch a new pair of Powerbeats wireless headphones soon.
The filing confirms that it's for a pair of wireless headphones from Apple. They feature the model number A2015, and an image included with the filing shows that they've got a similar design to Apple's Powerbeats 3 headphones.
The one big difference we can see between these new headphones and the Powerbeats 3 is the location of the cable. On the Powerbeats 3, the cable comes out from the front of the headphones, but on these possible Powerbeats 4, the cable comes out of the back of the headphones where the earhooks are located. That could make them a bit more comfortable since the cable will be going behind your ears and head rather than having the cable come out of the headphones in front of your ears.
There aren't many other details on these new headphones included with the FCC filing. It's possible that they'll include the same Apple H1 chip found in the Powerbeats Pro and AirPods 2, which enables "Hey Siri" support so that you can access Apple's digital assistant using just your voice.
It's unclear when Apple will launch these Powerbeats 4 headphones, but now that they've cleared the FCC, they're one step closer to hitting your ears.
